NAVAL SURFACE WEAPONS CENTER DAHLGREN LAB VA
Pagination or Media Count:
An epoxy-encapsulated time-of-arrival pin and cable configuration spikeducer for use in shock wave experiments is described. The configuration provides a protective cover for a piezoelectric pin and facilitates accurate pin positioning in an experiment. A precision molding fixture has been designed for spikeducer fabrication. The details of fabrication and the application of spikeducers in a shock wave experiment are presented.
